Minnesota Adds CVS and Goodrich Pharmacy to Expanding Pharmacy Vaccine Network

[ST. PAUL, MN] — Governor Tim Walz announced today that CVS Health and Goodrich Pharmacy will be added to the expanding network of pharmacies vaccinating Minnesotans across the state. Minnesota now has five pharmacies with dozens of locations participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program that launched last month.

As part of Target’s nationwide partnership with CVS Pharmacy to administer COVID-19 vaccines, three CVS in-store pharmacies at Target stores in Duluth, Rochester and Eden Prairie will receive 3,510 vaccine doses this week. Goodrich Pharmacy will receive 1,170 vaccine doses this week. Appointments will open for eligible Minnesotans beginning this weekend.

“We’re working relentlessly to build a robust provider network across the state and give Minnesotans options for how they can get vaccinated as efficiently and equitably as possible,” said Governor Walz. “As vaccine supply from the federal government continues to increase, we’re building the path so getting your COVID-19 vaccine can be as easy as making an appointment online and walking into your local CVS at Target or pharmacy. We will continue to mobilize every option we have to get more life-saving shots into more arms as quickly as possible and end this pandemic together.”

Appointments at CVS and Goodrich Pharmacy will become available in the coming days, and the locations and contact information for scheduling appointments will be accessible on the Vaccine Locator map when the information becomes available. The state will also be notifying eligible Minnesotans who are signed up for the Vaccine Connector about this new vaccine opportunity.
